The hunt is on for whoever ‘mindlessly’ set fire to a recycling bin at a St Albans home.
Police are appealing for witnesses of the arson, which spread to three other recycling bins and caused £60 worth of damage.
The incident happened between 7.40pm and 7.50pm on New Year’s Eve to a bin situated outside the home in Russet Drive.
PC Ben McGregor, who is investigating, said: “This mindless and dangerous act occurred while the occupants were at home.
“Thankfully the fire was discovered and stopped before it could spread further.
